Lineage celebrates the significant creative force of contemporary women artists from the Maningrida region in Arnhem Land NT, working across the media of fibre, fabric printing and paper.
The Maningrida region in Arnhem Land is one of the most linguistically diverse places in the world, with 12 distinct languages spoken by over 110 clan groups. The landscape is commensurately diverse, covering over 7 000 square kilometres and ranging from saltwater coastal regions to rocky escarpments.Uniting these artists from different linguistic groups, regions and generations is a profound connection to djang: “Djang is an ongoing, eternal, life-giving transformative power that accounts for every aspect of existence. It also refers to the creation ancestor, the country where spirit resides, and to ceremonial designs and songs that represent that being. It is what powers our art.”
